This specific Omega Speedmaster transitional model Ref. 145.022 is truly special and dates to late 1969. This transitional model uses the caliber 861 instead of the earlier caliber 321 which is common for the transitional references and has been completely overhauled and is running perfectly. We absolutely love the Omega Speedmaster for its timeless look and utilitarian functionality!

The case is in wonderful condition showing thick and even lugs. The bezel is 220 bezel which is seen on some of the transitional 1969 145.022 69-ST references moving into 1970.This bezel is a very rare misprint from omega and is said to have only been in production for 7 weeks before omega switched it back to 200. This bezel is correct on a narrow range of 145.022-69 ’s produced in late 1969/1970. The Omega 1171/1 Bracelet with 633 end pieces remains in excellent vintage condition showing some slight stretch from use.


The black matte "step" dial is in flawless condition. The lume is fully intact with zero lume graduation and has taken on a wonderful ivory like patina. The hands appear to have been replaced at some point as they show luminova under u.v. light but seem to match the dial in natural daylight. The original Omega hesalite crystal exhibits light surface markings as seen in photos that can be polished out upon request.


None. The watch was just serviced and is running at COSC spec backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
